Replacing the motherboard was really easy. However it has not fixed my refrigerator. I continue to have cooling issues with fridge and sometimes with the freezer.

Fridge and freezer consistently get warm during Summer

After pulling fridge out from the wall, removing the bottom back panel and inspecting the fridge operating parts, I noticed the condenser fan never comes on. Reading online I found that most of the time the problem is with the main control board. I simply unscrewed the back panel, carefully disconnected the cables from the old board, plugged them back in to the new board, replaced the panel and started the Fridge back up. It cooled right down to normal temperature within the hour! Five years of neurotic behavior around cooling the fridge were over! My wife and I constantly rearranged various fans around the kitchen and joining rooms, opened the cabinet above, taking out the bottom shelf to make more ventilation, pulling the fridge out from the wall several inches, and worrying every time the freezer went up to 9 or 10 or even 20 degrees, and the fridge section up to 40 or even 45 degrees F. I can sleep easy now, and use the fans on us in hot weather, rather than the constant buzz in the kitchen. We can even have a conversation without yelling above the din of the fans!

I did an internet search on the issue, which was that my refrigerator suddenly stopped dispensing ice and water through the door. Also, the refrigerator had been cycling on and off constantly for some time. I found a YouTube video showing how to replace the main control board; along with a link to order the new part. I ordered the part and selected standard shipping. My part arrived in 48 hours. I replaced the main control board just like in the video. My refrigerator works like new now. I was able to solve my problem in two days on my own, for the cost of parts only. I am sold on PartSelect.com.

The video instructions were easy to follow as well as the replacement. The replacement Main Control Board is generic to different refrigerators and has more connectors than the original. Be sure to identify the locations prior to removal and installation.

We first read that we should thoroughly clean the coils which we did. They were very dirty, full of dust. This seemed to help for a couple days then the hot and cold started up again and was even worse. We did some research on the internet and all indications led us to change the main control board. We found PartSelect ordered the part, received it super fast (within 2 days), changed the part in less than 15 mins and our refrigerator works like new. No trouble since the repair. Saved a lot of time and money doing the repair ourselves.

Had a repairman come out and quote me over $600 to replace the control panel and the display. I went online and found you guys, watched the video, and replaced the control panel in less than 15 minutes. Your video was great and gave very clear instructions - unplugged the fridge, unscrewed the panel on the back, popped off the control panel and connectors using needle-nose plyers, put new control panel in place and reconnected all the plug-ins, put cover panel back on, plugged fridge in, reconnected and checked display inside front of fridge, it came on and lit up, closed the door and let the fridge cool to the proper temp. The fridge is now working great for around $175 for parts. Thanks!
